There Is No Such Thing As A Private Search Engine

Any search engine can be used privately though.

The NY Times has a piece calling DuckDuckGo a Feisty Google Adversary

This same kind of misinformation will help Google with their antitrust case by allowing them to say they have “competition”.

We applaud DuckDuckGo for trying to offer a search engine that keeps you private from Google, but it doesn’t. While they may not share your search queries or track you, Google can still tell what you searched for and continues to track you.

Remember years ago these same pundits said Google’s Incognito Mode was a way to be private when browsing?

When it comes to online privacy, it isn’t the browser, search engine, website or VPN that makes you private, it is where you run the browser (we will explain in a bit).

There are several FACTS you need to know about browsing: First, Google has already identified your computing device and matched the id with you. Second, it is almost impossible to remove ALL of the Google cookies on your browsers and devices. Finally, Google tracks you across the web and keeps permanent logs of your activity. You can read more about this in the book “The Age Of Surveillance Capitalism

So you did a “private” search using DuckDuckGo. Naturally you clicked on one of the top results right? That link/site has a Google cookie on it.

So if DuckDuckGo doesnt share your search queries but Google can tell what you searched for, is that search engine really private? No. DuckDuckGo isn’t a threat to Google because a. Google can still see what you searched for b. The quality of search results are inferior to Google’s.

How do you search privately?

There are two ways you can surf privately. You can either visit a public Internet cafe in another town (this hides your device and location) or you can use the virus free browser TraceFree.

TraceFree is a browser that runs on a server in the cloud. Your keyboard and mouse remotely control a very powerful computer in another location Your monitor only sees what the server sees and no code ever touches your device. .A search engine like Google sees the identity and location of the cloud provider (Azure, IBM, Rackspace) and not your device. Your searches are never matched to your device, which makes using ANY search engine private.

Google cannot track you because all Google cookies stay on the server in the cloud. At the end of your browsing session the browser is deleted. Not only is there no trace of your browsing on your device, but you can never get a virus.

TraceFree, is a special browser for people who want a Private and Safe Web.
